  • 6-14 large eggs
  • 1 cup of water
  • the rack that came with your Instant Pot OR the Egg Racks
  1. Add the water to the bottom of the pot. If you are using the rack that came with your Instant Pot, you can fit 6 eggs at a time. I would leave space between them on the rack. If you are using the racks that hold up to 14, fill them up with as many eggs as you want, making sure to balance them out evenly. Don't put all the eggs on one side.

  2. Pick the amount of time you would like to cook the eggs by taking a look at the photos. For really hard boiled, I would cook at 6 minutes high pressure.
  3. Press the manual button, then adjust the time on the Instant Pot screen by using the plus or minus symbol.
  4. Place the lid on top and flip the knob on top to sealing.
  5. When the time is up, release the pressure manually by placing a tea towel on top and turning the knob to release the pressure. Do this very carefully as steam comes out and can burn you. Find YOUR safe way of releasing the pressure manually.
  6. Plunge the eggs into an ice water bath.
  7. When the eggs are cool enough to handle peel and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

These eggs were done at an altitude of 2200 feet, if you are a higher altitude, add on another minute for cook time for each step. Lower altitudes will cook faster. For every 1,000 feet above 2,000-foot elevation, you must increase cooking time by 5 percent.
